The four candidates being considered are:
Eugenio (Gene) Bernal, Deputy Chief - Orlando, Florida Police Department
Anthony Holloway, Chief of Police - Somerville, Massachusetts Police Department
John A. Jackson, Chief of Police - Alamosa, Colorado Police Department
Thomas V. Lawrence, Commander - Dallas, Texas Police Department
"I believe we have identified four highly qualified police professionals to be considered to replace retiring Police Chief Sid Klein. The final candidates reflect what our community believes in and have the experience to lead one of the premiere police departments in the nation. Now it is time to give the public an opportunity to give the candidates a closer look," said City Manager Bill Horne.
The candidates will be in town Dec. 15 and 16 and will meet one on one with Union officials, city council members, and City Manager Bill Horne.
Candidates’ resumes are available upon request.
Police Chief Sid Klein will retire on February 26, 2009 after 29 years of service as Clearwater’s Chief of Police.
